Ingredients

1 package dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water
10 cups flour (up to 2 cups of the total may be whole wheat flour, if desired)
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups warm water (approximately)

Procedure

Proof the yeast with 1/2 tsp sugar in 1/4 cup warm water.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, and 3 cups warm water. Add dry ingredients gradually so that everything is thoroughly mixed.
Add dissolved yeast and mix well.
Depending on various factors (humidity, type of flour, etc.), you may need to add more water or more flour. The dough should not be sticky, but will be very dense and stiff.

Knead dough thoroughly until smooth.
Cover with a light cloth and set in a warm place to rise about 1-1/2 -- 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400F.
(Lightly grease cookie sheets or shallow baking sheets.) Correction: this line should read "Lightly FLOUR cookie sheets or shallow baking sheets."
According to Rev. Father Mark Malone, St. George Melkite Greek Catholic Church, 1620 Bell Street, Sacramento CA 95825, (916)920-2900, no fat can be near Holy Bread. Since oil and grease are by products of fat they can not be used.

Punch down risen dough. Shape into balls about the size of a tennis ball or baseball, depending on size of loaf desired. Roll between hands until smooth.
Flatten each ball until less than 1/2 inch thick. Place on baking sheet, shaping as necessary.
For each loaf, dip Holy Seal (IC|XC NIKA Stamp) lightly in flour and press firmly into the center of the loaf.
Make vertical punctures all the way through the dough around the edges of the seal and in the rest of the loaf to allow steam to escape and prevent rising.

Baking

Bake about 13-15 minutes, until bottoms of loaves are light brown. Top crust should color very slightly.
When done, remove from baking sheet. Cool on racks.
When loaves are completely cool, they may be put in zip-lock bags and frozen for future use.
Makes about six to eight loaves which are about six to eight inches in diameter.

Number of Loaves Made

Traditionally five loaves are made to represent the two fish and five loaves that Our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ blessed to feed the crowd.

  • Two loaves are large for Holy Eucharist
  • Three loaves are small for the Antidoron and for family.

I have made that number of loaves from this Recipe for Qurban.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
